Update1 with 25 New Photos – 2015 Audi E-Tron Quattro Concept is Sexy but Pointless EV SUV

Updated with 25 Live Frankfurt PhotosThis is the latest Audi fantasy concept. And it is not named Prologue. Yay! But it is just as exhausting to behold. The E-Tron Quattro is a 100-percent electric SUV concept promising 310 miles of range and AWD traction. In truth, though, the idea of an EV SUV is the most ridiculous thing we can even fathom. Electric vehicles and SUV adventures are anathema. They do not mix. Imagine going skiing from Denver to Vail or Breckenridge, a three hour mountain drive climbing thousands of feet on steep mountain roads. It is snowing, with fresh …

2016 Dodge Charger PURSUIT Debuts new 12-inch Touchscreen with PnP Police Computer Systems

Dodge just updated its 2016 Charger Pursuit LEO model with some never-before-available tech: a giant portrait touchscreen that is custom-designed to be the main display and control for law enforcement officers in daily duties. Until now, the preferred method of departments to put computers into squad cars has been a floor-mounted Panasonic Toughbook. Yes, the laptop was theoretically portable, but not as mounted on its giant metal arm. Bolted down under the seat, this arm let officers move the laptop over the center console, angled toward them a bit. But still extremely awkward, and using an touchpad / nub thing …

2017 Porsche 911 Carrera Goes TURBO! +20HP and -0.2s For New H6TT Standard Engines

This is a pretty interesting bit of news!  The standard Porsche 911 Carrera will go turbocharged from the 2017 model-year. All-new boxer six engines in 3.0-liter displacements run standard twin turbochargers. Outputs are up 20-horsepower for both Carrera and C2S models: 370 plays 420 in the Carrera S. The new engines deliver a 62-mph sprint that is down 0.2-seconds for both models. For the first time, the PDF Carrera S will scorch up to 100-kph in just 3.9-seconds. But what about the iconic sound of the 911? Will this mark another degradation in harmonics, a la the 993 –> 996 …

2016 Toyota LAND CRUISER Sports Fresh Design and Big Tech Upgrades

  Toyota’s loveable Land Cruiser is fresh for 2016 with a variety of cool updates to the style, performance and luxury inside! The Land Cruiser is all new from the A-pillars forward, with a much larger and truckier grille than the current model. The two-piece intake element now includes thick chrome bars extending into the headlamps. It is clearly a much more butch appearance all around, thanks to that grille and the new domed hood. The upper hood now wears a deep rounded edge between the engine cover and the fenders. A dip in the middle of the hood flows …

2016 Renault TALISMAN Is All-New French Flagship Saloon

Welcome to the top of the Renault range: the new Talisman sedan. This fresh D-segment saloon is a larger and more plush big brother to the awkward Laguna — promising world-class comfort, design, luxury and technology. All with a completely fresh design and dimensions to compete with the BMW 5 series. A total length of 4.85-metres is fairly gigantic for a front-drive luxury sedan in France. As the segment’s built-in government and livery driver pool looks to Germany for their fleets, the large car market in France is fairly depressed and likely to continue deteriorating. As the Citroen C6 and …

2016 BMW X1 Grows Up Tall With All-New Platform and X7-Previewing Design

Grew up tall and grew up right! The new BMW X1 is here and is a massive advancement in the BMW SUV portfolio. Not only is the car improved throughout, the design is a fresh and forward-looking take on what the upcoming X7 and 750 will look like. This is the latest BMW nose and kidney style, as seen recently on the CSL Hommage and the Vision Future Luxury. Larger, more vertical and more square kidneys is the latest look.

Hypercar Heroes – 750HP, 2.7s 2010 PAGANI Zonda R is 7 Minutes in Heaven

No study of hypercar heroes would be complete without the phenomenal Pagani Zonda R from 2009 to 2010. Just 15 examples of this hardcore track machine were produced, with pricing of around $2.5-million each. With typical Pagani thoroughness, the Zonda R’s creation is far more that a set of slick tires and lightweight carpet. As you can see from almost every angle, the Zonda R employs an all-new aerodynamic setup. Giant lower intake scoops and splitter could cut off a pedestrian at the ankles, with the sharp wedge of a carbon-fiber nose an effective cleaver to finish that dark job. …
